Midwinter has come

Dec 14, 2016 - 6:35 PM - by beibhinn
In celebration of the Midwinter Festival, we have the following notes for you:

  • The Frozen Medal of Honor and Frozen Cloaks of Midwinter are once again available!
  • Battleground Presents are there to be gathered!
  • The Traveling Merchants have their winterly return to the realms!
  • A new challenging instance awaits those willing to brave the cold!

Midwinter will start today, December 14th, and will run until January 17th, 2017..

Read on for more details!
Frozen Cavern Instance

  • Venture to the Frozen Cavern and test yourself against the chill... and its cunning inhabitant: Jack Frost!
  • Two modes exist for this instance: Normal and Challenging
    • The Normal mode has a chance to drop the following rewards:
      • Newly re-skinned chestpieces!
        • These chestpieces are from existing items but they've been given brand new procs!

      • New mythirians!
      • Infernal sleeves!
      • Darkness Falls jewelry!

    • The Challenging mode has a chance to drop the following rewards:
      • Newly re-skinned chestpieces and weapons!
        • These chestpieces are from existing items but they've been given brand new procs!

      • New mythirians!
      • Infernal sleeves!
      • Darkness Falls jewelry!
      • This mode also drops much more loot!






  • Visit Njord in the following locations to enter the instance of your choice:
    • Albion: near Merlin's Tower in Camelot
    • Midgard: near the Burial Grounds in Jordheim
    • Hibernia: near the Chamber of Magic in Tir na Nog


Traveling Merchants

Several popular items have also made their return, including Darkness Falls Weapons and many more!




Players can find the merchants at the below locations. Happy Shopping!

In Albion: Just outside of gates of Castle Sauvage in Camelot Hills
In Midgard: Just outside of Svasud Faste in the Vale of Mularn
In Hibernia: Just outside of Druim Ligen in Connacht

Midwinter Festival

The days grow short, a chill is in the air, and warm fires glow in our homes. The Midwinter Festival has come once again to the Realms! Visit the festival grounds to take part in the festivities and challenges.



Olibar, the Midwinter Tomte, will be paying frequent visits to Castle Sauvage, Svasud Faste, and Druim Ligen seeking assistance. He seems to have lost some Midwinter presents throughout the battlegrounds. Speak to him if you wish to assist him. Players on Gaheris between the levels of 35 to 49 can speak to him to receive a special Frontier Gift Retrieval quest instead.

Santa Nicholas, Lucia of the Light, and Jack Frost will arrive with gifts for the people of the realms, but there’s been a bit of a crisis: their presents were hijacked and are now in the possession of dangerous enemies. They will offer the Saving Midwinter quest to all adventurers level 48 and above. Save Midwinter and earn a new Frozen Cloak of Midwinter and a Frozen Medal of Honor! Visit them at the Winter Villages outside of Ludlow, Ardee, and Vasudheim.

In Albion, Clara sets up a giant tree at the festival tents. Speak with her for information on obtaining an appropriately-sized one for your own home or yard. Nearby, Sister Samantha is collecting toys for the children of Albion. She offers some fine holiday greenery as a reward to those generous souls who answer her call.

In Midgard, Kevin somehow manages to decorate a tree all for himself. Ask him about it and he may give you a few pointers regarding your own arboreal home decorating. The Gythja of Frigg is taking donations of toys from passers-by and granting them wreaths and... [Read More]
